The first time I’ve visited Little Nap Coffee Stand I fell in love with the place. It’s in a quiet side street near Yoyogi Park, one can hear the trains passing by just behind the building and the coffee itself is great.
This photo was taken on Saturday, December 3, 2016. On that day I’ve visited several coffee shops in Tokyo on my bike (you can see it in the reflection of the window, it’s the orange one). I’ve started early at Cafe Kitsuné (sadly closed, but re-opened nearby), then Fuglen (be sure to also visit their new Asakusa branch), Paddlers Coffee, Little Nap Coffee Stand, Deus Ex Machina and Be A Good Neighbour. Yes, yes, in retrospect this sounds like too much coffee for one day. Tokyo is heaven for coffee lovers, so here are some more of my favorite places: together with Little Nap Coffee Stand Onibus in Nakameguro shares the top position. Also this one’s next to rail tracks, so be sure to sit upstairs and watch the trains go by. Nearby there is the lovely Artless Craft Tea & Coffee. Cafe de l’ambre in Ginza, Kayaba Coffee in Yanaka and Chatei Hatou in Shibuya have a more traditional feeling, all of them are worth checking out. Some more beloved places are Light Up Coffee, Allpress Espresso (this building, wow), Bear Pond Espresso, Blue Bottle Coffee in Aoyama, Switch Coffee Tokyo, No. and Haritts Donuts & Coffee (this one mainly because of the donuts, but the coffee is also great). And lastly: for coffee bean counselling visit Koffee Mameya (this shop opened in the location of the original Omotesando Koffee).
This photo was taken with my Fujifilm GF670, most likely loaded with Kodak Portra film.
